Founded in 1998, independent developer Level-5 has been behind some great games, such as the Professor Layton series and Dragon Quest VIII, while Studio Ghibli has crafted some of the finest and most entertaining films to ever come from Japan including Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies.
"It was a momentous experience to create a game with artists who represent Japan as much as Studio Ghibli and Mr. Hisaishi do," said Akihiro Hino, president and CEO of LEVEL-5 Inc. "We sincerely want to share this title with the entire world."
"The incredible people involved in this game give it a pedigree that is rarely seen in video games, and it's a fantastic addition to our line-up for 2012," said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President at Namco Bandai.
"It takes a very hard heart not to be thoroughly enchanted by the amazing universe they have created together."
